Exhibitor Kit


Exhibitors making sales at the NGS Conference who are not registered in the state of Virginia to collect sales tax must fill out form ST-50. Forms will be provided to exhibitors on-site at the Greater Richmond Convention Center on the first day of the conference. The exhibitor is then responsible for completing the form, enclosing payment, and sending it directly to the Virginia Department of Taxation. The tax rate at the time of the conference will be 5.3%. Exhibitors who are registered in Virginia to collect sales tax do not need to fill out the ST-50 form and should report their sales through the normal channels as a Virginia vendor. A business license is not required for a one-time event in the state of Virginia.

For additional questions, please contact the Virginia Department of Taxation online at http://www.tax.virginia.gov or by phone at 804-367-8031.
